$2,750/mo gyms, an abducted crypto bro & using AI on shrooms 👀🍿🧃
Remember how we called out a gaming company a few weeks ago for their ABHORRENT Youtube video? The most incredible exposé about them was just published and it is… A DOOZY. With former employee quotes like “It’s [the company] a narcissistic endeavor headed by a raging narcissist who desperately wants to be famous,” it’s an absolute can’t-miss read.
Also, nothing kicks off a week like an update from Caroline Calloway. This tweet snagged screenshots of her Instagram account:
''Ex-Morgan Stanley advisor charged with defrauding NBA players out of millions"- The audacity of this dude telling the players to donate to charity when he was the recipient…
''Fitness-Turned-Christianity Influencer Brittany Dawn Just Addressed Her Upcoming Trial For The First Time''- YIKES. Her and her husband agreeing not to Google each other when they began dating because of all their 🚩🚩🚩. Also, the reason the trial is delayed? There’s more than $800k received that wasn’t disclosed by Dawn’s defense team…
‘'A Crypto Fugitive’s Very Public Life While on the Run''- Ok, but I still want to know what Novogratz did with his massive Luna tattoo after the crash and burn…
Not jaw-dropping scandal but we love some historical intrigue:
''People Are Saying They’re “So Over” Mikayla Nogueira After The Makeup Influencer Was Accused Of Faking An Accent''- I’m torn on this accent thing, it’s entirely possible she’s developed a ‘professional voice.’
''A Judge Has Denied YouTuber Tasha K’s Appeal After She Was Found Guilty Of Defamation Against Cardi B And Will Have To Pay Out Millions In Damages And Legal Fees''- Turns out the “if you don’t have anything nice to say…” adage can also save you $$.
‘'Lindsay Lohan and Jake Paul Are Among The Eight Celebrities Charged With Illegally Promoting Crypto Without Saying They Were Paid To Do So''- Double whammy here on the whoops.
Things truly are going to get seriously confusing as AI progresses, especially when people using them are tripping on shrooms.
''Financial Companies Are Encouraging Gen Z To Pay Rent With Their Credit Cards''- Dang, I would have had *so many* points from my time renting in NYC.
''The Dream of the Nineties Is Alive at 90s Con''- Not scandal, just nostalgic vibes. Remember Sea Monkeys?
''JPMorgan Is Being Sued For Allegedly Selling $10 Million in Jewelry in a Couple’s Safe Deposit Boxes''- JPMorgan pulled a move from The RealReal!
''Reality TV Fame Used to Guarantee a Career as an Instagram Influencer. That’s a Thing of the Past''- And somehow I can’t imagine reality shows having any problems continuing to recruit participants.
'‘Think Getting Into College Is Hard? Try Applying for These Gyms.''- Omg, you have to pass the cool check AND pay $2,750/mo?
''How Cigna Saves Millions by Having Its Doctors Reject Claims Without Reading Them''- This is of course, a serious article but feel it deserves to be up here for full visibility.
''Crypto 'prodigy', 23, is 'abducted and TORTURED' after 'scamming' investors out of $29M before blowing $12M on fleet of supercars, luxury vacations and a private jet''- I don’t advocate violence but this seems like a good example of “f*ck around and find out.”
''Twitter Says Parts of Its Source Code Were Leaked Online''- An “inverse startup” is certainly one way of saying you’re destroying your own company.
‘'It Turns Out FTX and Alameda Owe Margaritaville a Staggering Amount of ''- What does wasting away in Margaritaville look like when you’re spending $600k there?
